Tecma produces top-quality aluminium components at its facility just outside the Catalan town of Banyoles and ships products worldwide to demanding customers across a broad range of sectors including renewable energy, transportation, electronics, medical devices and built environment. Able to produce even the most complex components and ready to manage the entire process from suggested design improvements through to assembly and packaging, Tecma is a true one-stop-shop for manufacturers whose products include aluminium pieces. With the port of Barcelona within easy reach and the French border just 53km away, Tecma’s location enables smooth logistics and rapid product delivery around and beyond Europe. Another very positive aspect of this location is its closeness to a strong supply of future manufacturing talent.

An important part of public education in Catalonia is the cicles formatius system. This involves students aged sixteen and above prioritising and developing vocational skills across a range of specialisms and industries. In and around Banyoles, a number of high schools’ cicles formatius departments offer courses focused on skills which are highly relevant for manufacturers. As part of their studies, cicles formatius students must do practical work assignments at local companies. Tecma is always keen to open its doors to young people on relevant courses as part of this programme, keeping a close eye on those who could join us permanently when their studies conclude.

At Tecma, then, we are confident about tapping into this talent pipeline as our company grows. Confident, but not complacent. That’s why we regularly visit local high schools and colleges in order to keep the Tecma name uppermost in the minds of young people set to enter the industrial workforce. We know that our modern facility, strong teamwork values and dynamic working environment make Tecma an attractive landing spot for talented first-jobbers. But we don’t leave anything to chance.

Hence our recent visit to Institut Josep Brugulat in Banyoles, where we brought students up-to-date with recent developments at Tecma, emphasising how the factory team is busy making products of the highest quality and making components prized by businesses all over the world. Our operations manager Miquel Puncernau was on hand to answer the students’ questions about the specific technical skills required by Tecma and the ways in which new Tecma employees can expect to build on these skills. Our HR manager Anabel Gonzàlez emphasised the inclusive, dynamic and supportive working environment new hires can always expect to enjoy at Tecma. Miquel and Anabel wrapped up the day’s activities feeling more confident than ever about Tecma’s ability to keep welcoming future manufacturing talent to join us as we evolve and grow.
